HC Deb 26 February 1952 vol 496 cc137-8W
123. Mr. Emrys Hughes

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland, what recent reports he has received from his inspectors of the defects in the Myton houses erected at New Cumnock by the Scottish Special Housing Association; what is the cause of these defects; and how it is proposed to remedy them.

Mr. J. Stuart

I am told that water penetration has occurred in these houses. After a number of experiments, a remedy has been found and the Association have instructed the contractors to apply this to all the houses as soon as possible.
